This afternoon, we’re holding one of our regularly scheduled New Resident Mixers!
When a new resident moves to Crane’s Mill, they are immediately welcomed by our Transition Counselor, along with many other staff members, and our resident-run welcoming committee. The idea is to make the person’s move to Crane’s Mill seamless, comfortable, and fun!
During their first week, new residents enjoy dinner invitations, a review of the activities calendar with our Director of Community programming, an overview of their apartment or cottage with our maintenance staff, and so much more.
In addition to this individualized attention, about every other month, we like to put aside an afternoon for our brand-new residents to come together with our resident welcoming committee and key staff members at our New Resident Mixer.
The mixer is a casual way for everyone to get to know each other. Wine, hot hors d’oeuvres, and more are served as new and existing residents mix and mingle. Then, staff introduces themselves, and each new resident tells the group a little bit about themselves.
We love hearing everyone’s stories of growing up, their professional careers, family lives, and what brought them to start this new chapter in their lives at Crane’s Mill.
